Opel will add a new model to its Russelsheim plant

Article by Christian A., on December 12, 2013

Opel revealed the fact that it will build a new model at its German plant located in Ruesselsheim, but declined to reveal more details due to competitive reasons. For those who don’t know, the plant currently produces four variants of the mid-sized Opel Insignia and from 2015, it will make the Zafira Tourer minivan.

The Zafira is currently built at the Bochum plant in Germany, but next year Opel will close this facility as part of restructuring measures. "With DRIVE! 2022 we have developed a clear ten-year plan which focuses on a multi-billion dollar model offensive. The offensive is in full swing. And we are already paving the way for the products that will give us the chance for further growth the end of the decade" says Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann.

Moreover, Opel also announced that together with its partner PSA Peugeot Citroen, it will build the future C-CUV (Crossover Utility Vehicle) models at PSA’s French Sochaux plant. As a result, Opel’s plant in Saragossa will build the successor of the B-MPVs of both companies. “The alliance between PSA and Opel is based on a balanced approach”, said Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann.
